Google back in 2005:

There will be no banner ads on the Google homepage or web search results pages.

Google today:

The company confirmed to the Guardian that it is testing a system with about 30 advertisers in the US in which it shows banner ads for companies including SouthWest Airlines on pages which include them in web search results.

And people wonder why I have zero trust in companies.

FWIW does anyone know free mail service with IMAP access and more or less capable filtering? (Eg. capable enough to filter on headers.)


Does your ISP offer mailbox as part of your internet package?

It is like when one changes telephone number or address, always an opportunity to get rid of connections that no longer matter. ;)

Pick good ISP so you don't have to jump to another one.

Use your own domain and an email forwarding service. It costs a pittance; my registrar offers forwarding for free, and the domain is less than $10 a year. My email address hasn't changed in 11 years but I've used four or five different email providers...
